This Is My Family: Wanting a Deaf Baby

Just came across this interesting BBC video of a deaf couple who desire a deaf baby. The 2004 video shows the program in its entirety (one hour long) and with subtitles.


  1. Finally had time to watch the video in its entirety and it was a wonderful documentary in that it teaches the viewers about two different worlds.
    Paul Dowdicam has hearing parents who raised him orally while Claire, his wife, has deaf parents.
    It isn’t easy to share your feelings with the public about what you want for your child and this couple did. I admire them for that.
    BBC Ouch! has a chat with Claire Dowdicam posted. I haven’t found anything more recent as the film and chat are dated Stepember 2004.
